Maybe L.A. Morse's books about Sam Hunter?
I remember two, The Big Enchilada and Sleaze.
They caused a bit of a stir back in the 80's for being heavy on the violence and raunchiness.

Johnny Wadd: The Novels?
Joe Copp by Don Pendleton?
Were they paperback originals? How many books were there?
There were a few series that struggled to fuse the hard-boiled novel with slightly more explicit sex scenes, mostly by small fringe paperback publishers, hoping for Spillane-like sales. Some weren't too bad, given the expectations, but none of them really caught on.
Even the Joe Copp series, which I think made it into hardcover, hung on as much because on Pendleton's name, I think, as the actual books.
